Samhain (Halloween) Sat. Nov 1 at 6:00 pm

Halloween_Vintage_CardWelcome Winter, waning season;
Now with night the New Year comes.
All who honor elder kinsfolk
Dance the dead to earthly drums.
Souls respected safeguard living
House we’ll hold and hallow hearth;
Blessings be on those who bide here,
Blessings be on those who bide here
And indeed on all the Earth.
.
Samhain Carol by Leigh Ann Hussey

Samhain (pronounced Sow-inn) is the ancient Celtic New Year, the Last Harvest Festival and the onset of Winter, the Time the Veil between the Worlds is thinnest, whose traditions are echoed in our Halloween and All Souls’ Day.We will celebrate the Celtic New Year by enacting a ritual inspired by Celtic myth. Myths are poetic statements of the life process. When we enact the myths in ritual, we enact our own growth and development, our passages. Teens and older children are welcome to the ritual. A separate children’s’ program for children under 11 years will be held from 4:30pm until the potluck feast.  Please bring your favorite dish to share. Costumes are socially correct.
